Hey! That's my thread...but, you make the point well, so I say, "welcome" or "thank you"...

I have to agree with JGlynn; like JJ in small doses. Especially liked the early sound with BBrother as then it was more of a "band" rather than just her fronting on her own.

The movie is a nice snapshot of her and Jerry and the others on that trip. Her interactions with the guy running the show are cool.

And you just made a good point about bands vs musicians, put together a few decent musicians that "click" and you have something much more than just individuals matching tempos and keys. Something prank phone call recorders don't understand, and yes is started to sound like tito. Songs and artists are popular for a reason, just as great musicians out there never get a top ten hit. They might put out 100 top 40 hits that get played year in and year out so technically they would be more popular... or they could tour everyday and practically ignore the radio and get a lot of fans that way, until the new crowd came along and pissed in their parking lot while facing haight and ashbury and anger the gods...
